We have started developing the second generation of The Childcare online Booking (CoB) system that represents a complete overhaul of the original project developed in 2011. We launched an updated version of the original booking system in 2015 that allowed us to reduce the price point, after receiving hundreds of enquiries from wraparound childcare settings across the United Kingdom. At the time there were only a handful of solutions and along with Libricu, we were one of the first to market.
We regularly carry out regular penetration tests on CoB to ensure we detect potential vulnerabilities on your booking system, to ensure your data is kept safe and you can focus on running your childcare setting.
We suspended minimum charges in March, during lockdown and continue to support our wraparound childcare settings & schools today. As a result our clients saved 15,934.80 (inc VAT) plus enabled settings to use CoB free of charge for keyworkers saving even more money.
We ahve now added Paymentsense as our preferred payment gateway for schools and clubs, using CoB.
We have launched our second iteration of bubbles that is designed to help maintain year group bubbles in line with the governments latest guidance published on 20th August 2020. The year group bubbles can be retro-fitted into existing calendars, in so far as you have not already created a workaround, along the lines of our advice in July.
